"news room" with brooke baldwin continues right now. >> wolf, thank you. great to be with you. i'm brooke baldwin. we continue here today. the world wants answers. right now this congressional hearing is underway. when you look at some of these pictures, this wasn't too long ago, these protesters here in the back of this room. they're holding up signs as the head of the nsa and the president's top intelligence chief are both there to testify as anger and suspicion grow over accusations of widespread u.s. spying. the worst of it, tapping the phones of u.s. allies. >> we, all of us in the intelligence community, are very much aware that the recent unauthorized disclosures have raised concerns that you've alluded to, both here in congress and across the nation, about our intelligence activities. we know the public wants to understand how its inte
't >> connectivity issue is a problem. on saturday kathleen sebelius was bragging how well the program was working and how it can perform quick calculations. none of those calculations were working yesterday during the shutdown. blaming parties going on because they were blaming the contractor, a part of verizon, for this issue. but all the information hubs, that hub holds your social -- nothing important -- your financial information. that is now being looked at as being exposed potentially. >> you're talking about exposure. the big question is, kathleen sebelius is going to have to answer she thought a set of questions. now she is going to have to answer hub questions. then she will have to answer security questions this week. the high-ranking guy with the f.b.i., representative mike rogers, now in charge of security in the house says i've got a problem with the security on healthcare.gov. >> it was very clear to me in the hearing that they do not have an overarching solid cyber security plan to prevent the loss of private information. i am even more concerned today than i was even last week. i

, kathleen sebelius, for the outstanding work she's doing making sure that millions of americans can get health insurance. >> or could they? scotty hughes is the news director for the tea party news network. she joins us live today. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> a lot of people are going, what exactly does it take to get fired by this administration? we've got a graphic of some people who have famously left the administration, including recently a guy who actually -- screen left -- that's the guy who had the fake twitter, he got fired. >> yes. he was in the national security department and he had a supposed anonymous twitter account that wrote some comments about republicans and democrats, except he went a little too far when he said that #obama in three words has an explicit staff. >> so he got fired because of the twitter and bath mouthed the boss. >> that's what it takes. >> you also saw stanley mccrystal. >> another great example. 2010 interview in rolling stone, where supposedly he took a dig at the president. but he still considers himself to be completely loyal from it.
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius missed an extended deadline set by house committee to turn over documents about the healthcare.gov website and could trigger a congressional subpoena from republicans. >>> lindsey graham is trying to hold up all nominations for federal positions until the outpost in benghazi appear in congress. they say they sent someone there on the night of the attack. the white house is accusing republicans of playing politics with the issue. >>> secretary of state john kerry may travel to egypt in the coming weeks we hear. it would be his first trip there since president mohammed morsi was ousted by the military last summer. ties between washington and cairo have been strained since then. the u.s. recently withholding $260 million in cash aid and military weapons pending egypt's progress on democracy and on human rights. >>> they are picking up the pieces this morning after one of the most powerful storms in years, which has battered great britain and western europe. at least 13 people were killed. pretty amazing pictures here. hundreds of thousands left
of representatives oversight committee has intend kathleen sebelius for documents relate to the obamacare web site. darryl issa is now calling the site supplierly difference funkal and is giving secretary sebelius two weeks to respond to the subpoena. yesterday she said most americans will be able to use the site by the end of next month. it's already been online for almost a month. what have we learned? healthcare.gov has not been working. the fact it it's been a disastrous failure by most any measure. claims to the contrary are filled with half truths. when looking for success stories, loaders point to the 15 states that have gone on their own. some state insurance exchanges do work. one, for example. but the cost is $100 million in new york, more than 160 million. in california, nearly $360 million. cbs news reports the total cost for the state exchanges alone is more than $1.1 billion. taxpayers dollars. and some state exchanges are as messed up as the federal. surprised? not to those in charge. the ones who did the testing? they new full well they needed more testing and were not given the ti
the site crashed two times this week. kathleen sebelius said the website has cost $174 million so far and more probably to fix it. >>> starting today $5 billion is cut from the food stamp program. that means less grocery money for millions. the cuts will vary by family but this is typically a family of four getting 668 a month would lose about $36. food stamp benefits were raised during the recession and temporary increase to the program and that expires today. in 2007, 26 million people were using snap as they call it, supplemental food benefits and compared that to almost 48 million now. 15% of the american population is using government assistance to help feed their family. $36 a month is going to hurt some people. people who work for food banks are upset about these cuts. others say this was meant to be a temporary measure and that temporary measure is now over. you'll hear more about that. >>> are you -- when you fly, are you going to be irritating with your devices now you're able to use them or a good citizen? >> i'm always a good citizen. >> i'm so glad nobody can chat on thei
exchanges. but the federal exchange, no money. in fact, juliette reports that kathleen sebelius couldn't find enough money to keep programmers under her wing and so what ended up happening was all of the responsibilities were fragmented to several offices in different locations. so what ends up happening is the train wreck that the republicans predicted would happen came true largely in part because of what republicans did to try to derail the law. now, that's not to say that there weren't mistakes, miscalculations, political timidity on the white house's part. but at least the white house is trying to do something affirmative, do something positive for people who don't have health insurance. the republicans have been trying to sabotage a law with no alternative to replace it with. >> and what you said just now interestingly enough seems to be where the american people are, jonathan. because if you look at the polls, the public still wants to give obama care a chance. 47% want to keep or expand the law. only 24% want to see the law repealed. and 13% say they want the law repealed and r
